Roop, Pearce, Reed, Oldham and German Coast of Louisiana Families

Our tree is growing!
Each family page begins with the oldest known ancestor (always looking for more!) and lists what I know of the descendants, although mistakes/inaccuracies, etc. probably abound. Please use the information as a guide to further research; only tombstones are written in stone and sometimes they are even incorrect. Check primary sources!
There are also links to other websites with that surname. To make it easier to search, our families are listed under the part of the country in which they lived.
Legal note: all information on these pages belongs to Margie R. Pearce and the folks who shared. It may be used for non-profit genealogical research, but not given or sold to anyone.
